Our Nurses of the Week are two nurses from the University of Arizona (UA) College of Nursing who recently received funding to take their work global. Jane Carrington and Kimberly Shea were awarded the opportunity to further their research and careers by becoming global ambassadors. Both nursing scholars were accepted to the Fulbright Specialist Program, a competitive program that allows them to share their knowledge with institutions around the world.

Carrington graduated from the UA College of Nursing in 2008 where she focused on informatics and healthcare technology. She is currently leading a research team on improving communication between nurses to increase patient safety, funded by the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.

Shea is a nurse and scientist whose research focuses on telehealthcare in patient’s homes. She has 25 years of nursing experience and has researched the topic of telehealthcare for a decade, as well as traveled to Central America to apply and assess telehealth opportunities.

These nursing scholars are looking forward to not only providing expertise in their respective specialties, but also to using this as a chance to learn how other cultures infuse technology into their healthcare practices.
